“Incredible place and easy to feel at home”

Reviewed 17 Dec 2016

We stayed here from the 9th through the 14th of December 2016. Let me start with the owner, John. He spoke with us before we arrived and answered our questions and really did make the choice easy for us...very straight forward. John met us at the house when arrived and he was accessible and responsive when I had a question. The house, its is over the top...beautiful, comfortable, easy to use, easy to feel at home, warm, get the idea. We used the kitchen every day and everything we needed was at our fingertips. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. I didn't think we would use the game-room...wrong...we did. It was a great part of "family time" which I didn't expect. The jacuzzi under the stars with the fire pit made for amazing nights under the stars. The mini golf course was very cool and a fun break before breakfast and after dinner. We had some things to do in Tempe but the ride back and forth was actually enjoyable...looking forward to chilling at the house instead of being crammed into a couple of hotel rooms closer to Tempe. Bottom line, we thanked John for sharing this amazing house in a very nice and not too remote area. Restaurants, food stores, golf, tons of stuff to do....all close by.

“What a property!!”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2016

Awesome place for our family of 24+ to stay for a week, with no real reason to leave other than to buy groceries. The pool, with waterslide and spa were wonderful. The miniature golf was pure fun, and the kids really enjoyed the in-ground trampoline. Had a few minor problems that were immediately taken care of by the owner. A really, really awesome place to stay.

Highly recommend. Amazing what you get here for the price. CLEAN and LUXURY. Better in person than in the pictures. We had a family gathering here, everyone had the best time. Private, huge house and huge yard with something for everyone to do. If the kids were not in the pool, going down the water slide, they were jumping on the trampoline or playing mini golf. When it was hot out, they were upstairs playing air hockey, pool or enjoying a movie in the theater room. Everything works great, we used everything, played tennis, used the gym, etc. The place is so big that the people inside the house were not bothered if there was noise outside. The music system was fantastic inside the house and outside. The kitchen is so large that it is not cramped when you are trying to cook for a big family. Impressive, beautiful master bedroom. BBQ grill outside near the swim up bar. Pool is clean and beautiful. Several nice different seating areas outside. It is beautiful at night too, there are lights over the gazebo and BBQ area. I can't think of one single reason to complain. It will be hard to find a place as great as this one. John was very accommodating, showed up when we checked in and took us through the house to show us how everything worked. He was very laid back and made you feel comfortable using all the amenities. We didn't need to call him for anything during our stay but we knew he was readily available if we needed something. You can tell he makes his guests comfort a top priority.

“Awesome Time and Awesome Property !!!!!”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2014

My wife and I cannot describe how great a time celebrating our 15th Anniversary at this slice of desert paradise ! From the moment I first contacted John Bigelow to book the property the entire experience was the best. Although the house was a little extravagant for two people we will be looking to rent again next year to celebrate our next Anniversary. Particularly enjoyed feeding the pet turtles in the front pond and the feeling of privacy the entire property provided. Our excursions to nearby Cave Creek, Lake Pleasant, Crown King and Hot Air Ballooning with Rainbow Ryders made our vacation complete....Thanks John see you next year, Paul and Dee Dee

“beautiful mansion”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2013

This property was an experience of a life time for me and my family. It was located is a very peaceful, quiet and private area. It was well equipped with space and activities for any large group. The number of bedrooms/bathrooms, family room, theater room, sitting area at pool, grill, basketball court, horseshoe, tennis, playground for the little ones, below ground trampoline, and much more. The master bedroom left you speechless, see through fireplace to the bathroom, jacuzzi tub with huge walk through shower, his/her closet and sinks, private toilet. We had so much fun no one was ready to leave.

“Great Place for Everyone”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2013

We rent a home every year for the family vacation. This was all around the best and safest for the children, too! Ages range from 3 to 67 and there was something for everyone. The tennis court and (heated) pool were in almost constant use, but there were also horseshoe contests, movies in the media room (Spurs basketball games, too), pool games in the game room, and constant snacking in the wonderful kitchen. Oh yes, barbeque from the grill, watching sunsets while sitting around the gas fire pit, watching the sunrise while listening to the multitude of lovely birds. The children loved the playground and in ground trampoline. The house was beautiful with so much room that it was never crowded. It truly felt like a mansion. The Arizona landscaping made for a perfect desert setting and watching the hot air balloons ascending each morning was a real treat. John was available anytime we needed anything or had a question. There was so much 'neat' stuff that we sometimes needed help in how to use it. Even though some took trips to the Grand Canyon and the Sedona loop, some never left the grounds because they were having too much fun. This was a great place, and I would highly recommend it.

“Family Reunion In style”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2012

This house is wonderful! We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and while it's located in a private, quiet area, it's close in to every amenity you need. The house had every convenience, and we were able to keep the children and adults comfortable, entertained and relaxed right there!!

“Beautiful Wedding”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2012

We were married here... ceremony in the front and reception in the back. It was stunningly beautiful. A large group of our family was able to stay there so we had lots of help with the preparations and they had a great time also swimming and playing basketball. This house has all the activities you would need for a whole weekend getaway. Caution: if you have a wedding or a large party here, the neighbors potentially will call the sheriff due to noise. We tried to keep the music down, but had hired a shuttle company and the police were called due to people talking in the front while waiting for the shuttle. They did nothing and were very cool, but just an FYI if you are going to have a large party. To sum it up, I had the best day of my life there!

“Family Reunion and Wedding”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2012

We were blessed with an amazingly warm week for the final week of 2011. That helped our guests utilize all of the special amenities that come with this awesome house. The pool/hot tub were in use day and night. Lots of fun on the basketball court. People were even playing horse shoes at the wedding reception. The owner, John, is very kind and always available prior to your stay, during and after. I needed to visit the property several times and many questions before our event and John was always accommodating. We have seen the wedding pictures taken at the house and I'm amazed at the different backgrounds that make the pictures especially beautiful. There are beautiful walls and doors, desert scenes, and my daughter, the bride, jumping on the in ground trampoline. Elegant and whimsical backgrounds all at one location! The kitchen is phenomenal but I would suggest having handles put on the beautiful cabinetry in the kitchen. It is a little hard to open. The beds are comfortable. Showers soothing. The sunrises and sunsets are awe inspiring. We had a very pleasant and memorable time together at this beautiful home. As many of my guests wonderful as the pictures are, they do not do this place need to see it!
